While I was waiting for my Vita games to arrive I decided to pick up this game from the bargain bin. It came out in 2012 but it did poorly so that’s why it’s like 70% off on Amazon and why the company hasn’t had any releases since. (´・ω・｀) After playing it through myself I now realize why that is – but more on that in my final thoughts. Our story is about Hinokami Chie who ends up going to boarding school when her parents go overseas. One day she runs into a 2 tailed cat ayakashi who tells her that she has some Onmyouji powers and asks her to seal the 12 Chinese Zodiac beasts in the zodiac book.
After god knows how many years of delays, Otomate finally released Brilliant Blue…however now that I finally got to play it, the delays are a mystery to me when all the common route/stat raising/date system is a copy pasta template of Passion Pink! Literally I just sat there force skipping through almost every “family” scene because it was dejavu from the previous game. Some scenes I sat through simply because it has been such a long time since I played PP that I didn’t actually remember if I saw them or not. Despite the copypasta, the individual brothers were still enjoyable for what it’s worth and while it took me a bit getting used to, eventually the system became pretty easy to go through. With improvements such as saving during choices as well as using quick save/quick load unlike last time, this time it was smooth sailing. Anyway on to Ema’s brocon adventures!
Kousaka Miyuki has transferred back to her old hometown from Tokyo for her 2nd year of high school. She hasn’t been there since kindergarten so she doesn’t remember much. She has long messy hair that she uses to cover up her face as a “barrier” because she has a serious case of social anxiety. When anyone gets near her, even just saying yes and ok is a near disaster for her, so she spends most of her time away from others. A few days after transferring she makes friends with her classmates, Kotaro, Minami and Jun (who are twins) and starts a better outlook on life. Little does she know that the past trauma is about to catch up to her. And here I’m back with another raving review about Tetrascaope’s games which is gonna be all tl;dr because I absolutely loved the story!
